    Cool Ba Duan Jin

    And we are sorry because we are using this thread to help others know what Ba Duan Jin is all about. Thank you, Gene and Happy Easter to you.

    Gene-

    Nice plug, as always, for your back issues. I actually came across this old thread because I was wanting to learn about the 8 section brocade. After seeing your ad, I recognized the cover as an issue I already had! So to add my view on these exercises, so far it has done me good. They are simple, but a good foundation, I believe. I started using posture 1 in conjuntion with stationary postures as my tai chi warmup.

    Now for my question. Are any of these tension movements? By the still pictures, the bow drawing and gaze while clenching the fist seem like strong postures.

    8 Brocade Pics

    More 8 Brocade

    Both links show pics of it as well as give instructions on how to perform it.

    Link1 offers both standing and sitting version.

    Hope this helps.
    Witty signature under construction.

    I do mine while watching the oreilly factor and/or the red sox. It sometimes takes as long as an hour and a half. My only problem is I can't do the reaching the sky with my right arm because my shoulder is totally krunked up from a snowboarding injury that healed funny. I learned it from KFQ thing Gene xingy xing long keeps talking about, but my version is alot more like the 1st one laughing cow posted. Shi Decheng one is great, but I can't go down in those deep horse stances.

    More 8 brocades

    Here is a Shaolin Poster version that we just got in stock.

    Here is video version that is quite martial. Low stances, tougher than most brocades. It also comes with an extra feature, as you'll see.

    Eight Brocade (Dao style)

    Interesting, the Ba Duan Jin I learned from Luo Dexiu is quite profound. I have heard that this set was developed by the same man who developed the Complete Reality school of Daoism. We do similar movements as what I see here but somewhat more elaborate.

    Another 8 section

    There's one title the Octupled brocade - I love that title - in the 5 volume Taguo set, but it's quite an investment if that's the only form you want out of there.
